Automattic’s hosted blogging platform WordPress.com has suffered a major outage today, taking millions of blogs offline.
The outage started at around 5:30pm PDT (10:30am AEST) with the main WordPress.com site stating only that it would be offline for a minute.
The official WordPress Twitter account stated about an hour after the outage began that the majority of sites are back up, however they were still working on bringing all sites back online.
At the time of writing (7:45pm PDT), WordPress customers including the GigaOm network remain offline. The WordPress.com main page is only occasionally loading, and even then not in full.
More if we hear it.
